Description Seth Bardash 2002-04-16 00:14:38 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; Q312461)

Description of problem:
RH Linux versions 2.2.14-5.0smp and 2.2.19-6.2.16smp does not finish booting 
after install has completed and boot hangs system on both the Tyan S2460 and 
the Tyan S2466

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install 6.2 from CD - Completes install
2.Only runs in uniprocessor mode after this
3.Boot smp kernel hangs at PCI_IDE1: BM-DMA at 0xf007-oxf00f......
It never gets to the line that displays hda:disktype

Actual Results:  See steps to reproduce

Single processor version works fine, SMP version hangs on boot
Tried cpu id fix, tried nodma fix, tried updating system and kernel

Expected Results:  It should get through the boot sequence and continue to the 
login prompt.

Additional info:

1) Downloaded kernel 2.2.20 from kernel.org and downloaded updated rpms for 
2) Ran RH 6.2 2.2.14-5.0 in uniprocessor mode.
3) installed required rpm's to get up2date to work correctly (not trivial)
4) ran up2date to bring whole system to latest rev's including 2.2.19-6.2.16 
kernel and source
5) Still found SMP broken
6) Installed 2.2.20 from item 1 above
7) Built kernel and added it to lilo.conf

8) Booted into 2.2.20 smp kernel with no problems!!!!!

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases,
